[image]MLAS Launches - NASA/Sean Smith
NASA successfully demonstrated an alternate system for future astronauts. The launch of the Max Launch Abort System, or MLAS, took place on July 8, 2009, at 6:26 a.m. at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, Wallops Island, Va. The unpiloted launch tested an alternate concept for safely propelling a future spacecraft and its crew away from a problem on the launch pad or during ascent. The MLAS consists of four solid rocket abort motors inside a bullet-shaped composite fairing attached to a full-scale ...

[image]Inflatable Re-entry Vehicle Experiment Launches - NASA/James Wingfield
A successful NASA flight test on Monday, Aug. 17, demonstrated how a spacecraft returning to Earth can use an inflatable heat shield to slow and protect itself as it enters the atmosphere at hypersonic speeds. The Inflatable Re-entry Vehicle Experiment, or IRVE, was vacuum-packed into a 15-inch diameter payload 'shroud' and launched on a small sounding rocket from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va., at 8:52 a.m...

[movies]Commercial Cargo Module Arrives at Wallops
The arrival of an Antonov cargo carrier at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia signals another milestone for NASA'S partnership with industry to re-supply the International Space Station. It brought to Wallops the Cygnus spacecraft's Pressurized Cargo Module, or PCM. Over the next few months, the PCM will be integrated with the Cygnus service module that includes the spacecraft's avionics, propulsion and power systems...

Note: Nearly every spring since 1991, researchers including William Krabill of NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Va., have flown on a NASA aircraft over Greenland, collecting measurements of ice thickness from an altitude of about 2,000 feet. Now, on March 30, Krabill and colleagures return to collect updated measurements. This time, however, the mission is set to be more extensive than ever before, and takes place with new urgency...

[movies]ATREX Mission Successfully Launched from Wallops
NASA successfully launched five suborbital sounding rockets on March 27 from its Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia as part of a study of the upper level jet stream. The first rocket was launched at 4:58 a.m. EDT and each subsequent rocket was launched 80 seconds apart. Each of the rockets released a chemical tracer that created milky, white clouds at the edge of space. The launches and clouds were reported to be seen from as far south as Wilmington, N.C.; west to Charlestown, W...
